canadian oil sands from port arthur are unlikely. okay? so this is a department of energy statement. let's inject some truth. but then mr. markey says, well, heck, if it's unlikely, let's just go ahead and outlaw it anyway, no harm, no foul. well, there's an article today in the "national journal" in which it quotes jim baucus, head of wto, former democrat from florida, congressman, who says that all forms of protectionism are politically appealing, particularly in an election year. he then add you but there's recent action by the united states against china for a similar export restriction similar to this, of condition not allowing commodities. and we have said china has broken free trade laws with their system of export, taxes and quotas. he goes on to say we would be at risk of offending the same law that we are kind of going after china on if we attempted to do something as well.
